About Me

I am retired, now a professor emeritus at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where I taught in the English department for 37 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetry though many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. I am writing now, both fiction and poetry, more now than ever. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).

Composition with baby. Please come CAPTION Mitt (if the 47% fits) Romney!!

Mitt (the only candidate who truly cares . . . (about his car elevator)) Romney is saying: "Furthermore, newborns, infants, children and even teenagers feel they are entitled to food, they feel they are entitled to health care, they feel they are entitled to shelter, and they even feel they are entitled an education! Beside, they weren't going to vote for me anyway!"

Tune up a flagging Tuesday. Please come CAPTION Rush ("Purge the poor!") Limbaugh!!!

Rush ("What's all this nonsense about democracy, anyway?" ) Limbaugh is saying: "I don't know what the heck they're talking about, ladies and gentlemen, I want everybody to be able to vote!!! Period. . . . No qualifications! No parentheses! No nothing! . . . But as the people's collective representative, The Congress of the United States should have the right to to change the place and time of voting at their discretion with, of course, several hours notice."

Say it isn't so, Joe. Please come CAPTION America's favorite (i.e., bereft) Sheriff!!!

Joe ("Where's all this mad f*cking hatred coming from?" ) Arpaio is saying: "My office did not and never will engage in racial profiling. . . . We go after criminals. . . . And since most of your Mexican types are criminals . . ."

Please come CAPTION Mitt (what the freak am I going to do now?) Romney!!!

Mitt (between a tax return and a sheer cliff) Romney is thinking: "Geez. I can't release my tax returns without Obama and his henchmen trying to distort items. . . . Like my shareholder position in companies that use child labor and have an inordinate suicide rates. . . . Like that audit and the penalties barely keeping me out of jail in 2009. . . . Like the Bain bonuses for 2001 and 2002 based on new employee positions in India. . . . Like the rent I jacked up on the orphanages and old age homes. . . . Like those life insurance policies I took out on unknown employees before I sent them into war zones . . . Yeah, I just can't release them. . . . Obama will make up nasty things about me if I do."

Who do you believe? Me or every fiber of your being? Please come CAPTION Charles Krauthammer!!!

Charles (don't disturb my elegant theories with your dirty facts) Krauthammer is saying, "Look, Obama's supporters have only one think in common: they don't know anything! . . . There was a study by the American Neo-Con Society that proved that unequivocally. . . . Further, the study showed they have no logical powers, no ability to survive on their own, no common much less advanced sense, . . . not much going on in the cranium-department, period. . . . They're barely sentient!"

There are no straight lines in this man's wanderings. Please come CAPTION Allen West!!!

Allen (the logic of grilled peanut butter sandwiches and jelly soup) West is saying, "The Democrats are calling me unhinged! . . . Well, if sniffing out 80 Communists members of The House of Representatives and thereby helping to save the Republic is 'unhinged,' . . . then I'm proud to be unhinged! . . . If calling the lower classes slaves to an entitlement society which gives them everything, undermining the economy of The United States, is 'unhinged," . . . then, you bet, I'm proud to be unhinged!. . . . If hearing God speak to me at night with Satan screaming in the other ear, warring over the end times while slapping sissy-boys in my dreams, is 'unhinged,' . . . then I'm proud to be unhinged! . . . If . . . (blah, blah, blah)"

A wet, hot, steamy load. Please come CAPTION Bill (a snake's too straight for me) O'Reilly!!!!

Bill (privy to the secrets of the gods) O'Reilly is saying: "There are people out there, ladies and gentlemen, who want to humiliate me just cause I said if the Supreme Court held otherwise, I'd apologize. . . . But every clear thinking person knows that by harping on that clip they simply show their vicious hatred and basic dishonestly!! Imagine, trying to hold me to what I said! . . . How dare they!"

Oh HUSH!!!! Please come CAPTION the motor-mouth himself: Rush ("It's inexplicable") Limbaugh!!

Rush ("If it doesn't go my way, someone needs prosecuted" ) Limbaugh is saying: "It's obvious that Justice Roberts changed his vote due to blackmail by the Obama's Black Mafia Administration. . . . Mark my words, administration thugs have something real dirty on him or on a relative of his. . . . If not that, then his vote proves he was a liberal sleeper all along, waiting until Bush put him on the court and he was confirmed to show his socialist progressive agenda. . . . He's brainwashed! . . . There's nothing else that explains it! . . . Unless the Supreme Court is becomng a criminal enterprise!!"

Another day, another abyss. Please come CAPTION Orly (bed talk) Taitz!!!

Orly ("The only truth is in my mind" ) Taitz is saying: "And this letter is from the current Kenyan Health Minister and attests to the fact that all circumcisions prior to June 5, 1979 were performed using the Mendelian Method, not the Kiger Clip, so called in Hawaii during that period, as it continues to be in fact. . . . Each leaves a distinctly different product, both in terms of the foreskin and . . . well, you know. . . . My point is, there's one way to clear this up easily. . . . Of course we'd need witnesses, say the Supreme Court and myself for starters."

"It's the kooks and the boobs and the dumbwads." Please come CAPTION Dr. Monica (snit-fit) Crowley!!!

Dr. Monica (dissertation on trash talk) Crowley: "Technically they are known as 'kooks.' . . . The yippies, who outraged even the hippies, took over the Democratice Party in 1968 and have taken us on an insane clown's joy-ride ever since. . . . They let the wackiest (also a technical term) take the wheel after they have pumped him full of LSD and give him a map drawn in a homicidal maniac's wet dream. . . . This is what we now call a Democratic Presidency. . . . This is all supported by professional data."
